You know those stories that make you say, "What the hell is wrong with people?" This is one of them. A couple from New York hired a dog sitter to watch their Samoyed, named Justin, last February, and now they are suing this woman, Beverly Jeffries, for dognapping and neutering the pooch without their permission. The show dog was worth $250,000 because of his amazing breeding genes, but if he's been fixed, his value is about $100,000 less.
The couple did sign over temporary custody of Justin when they hired her, but somehow I'm guessing that neutering the dog in April wasn't part of the contract -- hence the lawsuit.
And did I mention that Jeffries is also supposedly refusing to return the dog? Yep, she may have had him snipped against his owners' will and also now presumably thinks he's hers.
